Top-Rated Campsites for RV Trips in Maryville
The first thing you need to do to have a peaceful RV vacation in Maryville is choose your campground! The Maryville area offers many secluded RV parks and campgrounds that are just perfect for a relaxing family getaway. You can try the Whispering River Resort, located just a short 10-minute drive away from Maryville in Walland. This campground is the closest to the stunning Tail of the Dragon, a scenic route that is perfect for motorcycles or a leisurely drive around the mountain.
Or try Mountaineer Campground, just a short drive away in Townsend, where you can take a quick drive to Cades Cove. Cades Cove is one of the most scenic routes to drive, bike, or even hike.

Take a Drive (or a Hike) Through Peaceful Maryville
While you’re on your RV trip to Maryville, you have plenty of opportunities to drink in the scenery. In addition to Cades Cove and Tail of the Dragon, why not try a drive from Maryville to Clingmans Dome? This is a 57-mile trip that you can drive year-round. You’ll get some of the most stunning scenery in the area along this drive, and it’s easy enough for drivers of all skill levels to enjoy. Relax and let the jaw-dropping view of the mountains in spring refresh your spirit after the long winter. When you end your drive at Clingmans Dome, you’ll be in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and it’s easy to park your car and hike to waterfalls, or find picnic spots for lunch.
Then you can head back to your peaceful RV camp and enjoy the peaks in the distance as you curl up for a good night’s rest. This spring, let Maryville be your ideal getaway for peaceful relaxation!
